Free talk by Dr Sue Brunning of the British Museum


Fenland Archaeology has let us know about an upcoming talk of interest.

Thursday 27th May: 'Respect your Elders: Old Swords in Early Medieval England', by Dr Sue Brunning of the British Museum .
In Anglo-Saxon England, old swords were highly prized treasures coveted by warriors, warlords and kings. They were placed in burials, depicted in art and lauded in literature. This talk explores the evidence for the phenomenon and seeks to understand why older was better when it came to one’s sword. Dr. Brunning is Curator of European Early Medieval & Sutton Hoo Collections from the Department of Britain, Europe and Prehistory at The British Museum.

The lectures are all at 7pm, free of charge, available via Teams and bookable on Eventbrite.  If you would like to book a place, please use this booking link :
